I am receiving a USB communication error after updating my Epson printer software via Apple Software Updater. What can I do?


  • Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9
  • Product types below connected via USB:
    • Epson Inkjet Printers and All-In-Ones
    • Epson Laser Printers
    • Epson Large Format Printers


After updating your printer driver software using the Apple Software Updater (Apple Software Update Phase 20.4 (Ver.2.18)) for your Epson USB printer you may find that your printer will no longer print and you receive a USB communication error.


This problem can be resolved by downloading and installing the Apple Common Updater V1.0 from here or the Epson website.


Refer to article How to download drivers and software from the Epson website for full instructions on downloading and installing software.
